No strike at SAA

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS -

SAA said yes­ter­day that the SA Trans­port and Al­lied Work­ers Union (Satawu) had for­mally with­drawn a no­tice of strike served on its main­te­nance sub­sidiary, SAA Tech­ni­cal, af­ter sign­ing a wage agree­ment.

The trou­bled air­line was forced to re­view and up­date its con­tin­gency mea­sures to en­sure busi­ness con­ti­nu­ity and to min­imise the im­pact on its op­er­a­tions in the event the strike ac­tion went through.

SAA spokesper­son Tlali Tlali said that another meet­ing had been sched­uled for yes­ter­day af­ter­noon, with Satawu to iron out some is­sues.

“This means that the threat to cause pos­si­ble op­er­a­tional in­sta­bil­ity as a re­sult of in­dus­trial ac­tion has ef­fec­tively been re­moved,” Tlali said.

“We are truly en­cour­aged by these de­vel­op­ments.” – ANA
